SHERLOCK HOLMES "Star of the East"

Though Sherlock has just concluded it's 2nd season on Masterpiece Mystery...
...there's no shortage of the Greatest Sleuth of All's tale on this blog!
This never-reprinted tale from Charlton's Sherlock Holmes #1 (1955) has another Dr Watson look-alike, Dr Cromwell, is set in present-day America, and, again, the illustrator leaves the ear-flaps off Sherlock's deerstalker!
You'll also note the tartan-style pattern on both the deerstalker and Inverness cape disappears after Page 3!
Both the writer and artist(s) of these tales is unknown.
None of the stories is signed, and the art style seems to be a combination of the techniques of several different illustrators.

Join us next week for another tale of mystery..
